Making Some Progress

Wow things have been crazy around my house lately. We have a lot of projects going on at the same time right now and my entire house has been rearranged- until last night! I was finally able to finish a small update I was doing in my bedroom. Here is a before picture of our bedroom:

I know, what a very sad bedroom! After thinking about how we'd like our bedroom to look we decided to switch up the colors and go a lighter, more relaxing route. We settled on a new color palette of white, grey, and greyish-teal. We also decided to get a king size bed. And let me tell you... it's wonderful!! Anyways, without further ado, here is our bedroom now:

We are not finished with the bedroom yet but I feel like we have made some good progress. Next on the to do list for the bedroom is painting the walls a light grey, adding a bench to the end of the bed, putting some art on the wall, making a headboard and a few more little things. I am very excited about the new direction of the bedroom!! What do you think?

What's Wrong With This Picture?

I was very excited to learn that the new Ikea catalog is now available to view online!! So I ventured to the Ikea website to check it out. I like a lot of their new stuff and price reductions... but I couldn't help but be annoyed by something! Do you see anything wrong with this picture?

I am a BIG fan of the gallery style wall pictured on pages 264 - 265, but I am also a bit OCD about certain things like this:

Does it bother anyone else that one of the picture frames is crooked? Maybe it's just me...
